favorite thing is mitt romney said it was inelegantly stated when he said about the 47%. i hope that mitt romney e gets a chance to elegantly state what he said about the 47% of the american people not caring enough to take responsibility for their own situations in life. and i think, you know, what that crystallized for people, ed, is what they suspected about governor romney and paul ryan all along. and that is they don't really care about the middle class in this country. they are not really concerned about and they certainly don't understand what it's like to work hard and try to get ahead in the country. to play by the rules, but have a different set of rules for people like wall street. that's what that tape did. it crystallized for people that this is not a group that believes in a middle economic recovery. it's all about top down. >> all right. robert gibbs, great to have you with us tonight on "the ed show." remember to answer the question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow. the romney camp says they are prepared for the 47% comments. can he rever
states. florida, virginia, and ohio romney is tight in the races with the states of fluidity, florida and virginia. in florida obama and romney are neck and neck. virginia romney has narrowed the lead from 5 to 2. another statistical tie. in ohio the president has improved his standing. he leads romney there by eight points. and for those wondering about the party idea the sample is less democratic in ohio this time than the last poll. digging deeper into our numbers we divided thet battleground states by three measures. president's job rating. romney's favorability rating that number is still under water he has problems and the question of which candidate is better equipped to manage the economy. remember the unemployment rate is 5.9% in virginia. romney's favorable in florida but under in virginia and ohio. when it comes to who is better able to manage the economy a question on which romney has staked his candidacy romney has a margin of error lead in florida and virginia. the president leads on that question in ohio. with iowa, new hampshire and ohio headed to the obama column that
ground states. romney closing the gap in virginia and florida, but not ohio where the president is maintaining a strong lead into the debate. and despite what we found in the nbc poll, 4 in 10 americans are interested in the debates, but 60% are going to watch. tracie potts, nbc news. >> you can watch the debate at 6:00 here on the nbc bay area. >>> and meg whitman says turning hp around will take longer than expected. does she have time, scott? >> she will. the board will give her the time she needs despite she gave us bad news. whitman seen here in file video at the analyst meeting and said the turn around would take at least until the year 2014 or 2015. the company lowering its financial forecasts as well. in the case of enterprise services, that is where it deal was businesses, business may be off 13% and it will cut the number of printers it makes. something that apple does all the time. shares in hp are down 11% this morning. we care because this is a big company in silicon valley. >>> thanks, scott. there will be tons of action on the san francisco waterfront this week. i

to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> make voting harder, done. that's going to amitt romney to win our state. the judge sort of squashed it. technically, he did. this should ought to be the most important thing. the bottom line here in pennsylvania is that as of this judge's ruling today, you don't have to have a driver's license or photo i.d. you can still vote in the election this november if dwrour a legal voter even if you don't have that i.d. so hundreds of thousands of old people and poor people and students and people who just live in philly and take public transportation and don't have a driver's license, hundreds of thousands, maybe more than a million legal voters who were going to be blocked from voting from this new republican law are now going to be allowed to vote. but conveniently for the people trying to stop them from voting, this judge left a couple things still intact. first, the judge made clear that poll workers can still ask people if they have i.d. any way. even though fst not legally required for you to have an i.d. to vote, he says the poll worker can still
want the welfare state. so for mitt romney, it's 47% and for paul ryan it's 30%. the idea that a large portion of americans are beyond the reach of the kind of politics the republican ticket is offering, it turns out it's both guys on the ticket who believe that. it's not just mitt romney. joining us is ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post." thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> this is not new tape tonight. these are not new remarks. they are from november. i have to ask how they came to your attention and whether there's any suggestion from the ryan camp or romney folks that there's any question to its authenticity. >> there's no question. it was at a spectator event last november. it's been online since then, almost nobody has viewed it. it was sent to me and a few other reporters over the weekend along with about 15 or 20 other clips of paul ryan saying things over the past ten years. and i had kind of put it off sunday and monday, and today i just decided i'd listen to a bunch of these clips and here you go. here's paul ryan. >> in terms o
votes. mitt romney would have to run the table of every other swing state to get to victory. and clearly, romney's so-called supporters are now reaching for desperate measures. >> on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you've never heard from him before. >> oh, yes, that was the introduction last night before fox aired tape of a 2007 speech by then-candidate obama to a group of black ministers in which he criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided certain analysts with an excuse for a little racial fear mongering. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> do you notice a change in the way he delivers this speech? >> this accent is absurd. this is not the way obama talks. in is not a dog whistle. this is a dog siren. >> it's incendiary -- >> yes, it's just about as incendiary as two white dudes debates how black is too black in a black man's speech. in
you think is the real state of the economy right now and what mitt romney has in his position tonight? >>guest: the most important thing is mitt romney needs to show that the president and his previous budget that he has proposed with trillions of dollars in new taxes only does one thing: it grows the debt. it does not do anything if the deficit we have had. you give the bigger growth to the federal government. we have to have policies that provide the certainty to the private sector, the policies that enable them to grow. again, this is not saying we don't need any regulation but we need to have smart regulations. in california dairy year 2011, 71,000 pages of new regulations were institutessed. the people in the coal industry, when you look at what has happened to them when we could not get cap and trade moved through they are getting decimated. we have to have a vision like ronald reagan said, talking about a new dawn for this american economy. >>neil: congressman, you are among those who were brought in, in the republican avalanche that brought in 83 republicans and that tipped th
's words against his boss. the president of the united states. why a romney economic adviser says that would be a very good idea. andy is next. andy, what do you think of that? the vice president is claimings maybe it was an unintended slip that the middle class is buried, but it doesn't help the boss' cause. >>guest: i hope the governor says they are buried l is mounting death, chronic unemployment and incomes are falling. of course they buried. we need a change. we need a change of policy. we cannot have four more years like the four we have had. it is a great point. >>neil: what he also is saying , if mitt romney had his way, taxes would go up on the middle class. obviously governor romney says that is not the case but this downed frommen middle class would be even more down trodden. how should, if that comes up, the governor spend to that tonight? >>guest: there are two ways. he is proposing a 20 percent cut in the marginal rates for everyone. he is also proposing getting rid of capital gains if middle class l is no preliminary to raise taxes on the middle class. that is made
's up against the incumbent president of the united states. rom hee will t romney will try r call him. romney is going to have to communicate past layer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that i think he could have a very good night and you could see a very good race by thursday morning. >> later in the show you are going to hear from romney's former debate coach who is with him during the primary. oo tonight's debate is exactly what we would like to hear from you on today. what would you like to hear from the candidates tonight? send your comments over to us. tweet them to us at foxfriendsfirst@foxnews.com. >> those are the top stories making news at this hour. we know the identity of the border patrol agent shot dead trying to protect our border. nicholas ivy was 30 years old from utah. he leaves behind a wife and two children. avery and another agent were shot. that is an area known for drug smuggling. >> the agent died in the line of duty protecting our nation against those who threaten our way of life. his death strengthens our resolve to bring those responsi

leader, mark -- mike turzai, predicted it would help romney win the state. tuesday's ruling does help pave the way for its use in future elections. mississippi also announced it will not enforce its law requiring photo ids at the polls. palau was put on hold after the justice department demanded proof that the measure would not violate the voting rights act. meanwhile, the battle of guns in ohio with some candid out overnight in order to cast their ballot. ohio is the seventh state to begin early voting. president obama and republican candidate mitt romney face off in denver tonight for the first debate of the presidential campaign. on tuesday, vice-president joe biden drew ridicule from republicans after saying the middle-class has been buried the last four years. although biden was referring to the effects of the financial crisis that began under the bush administration, paul ryan seized on the remarks as an admission of failure. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how can they justify raising taxes on the middle class? the middle-class has been buried last four years. how
own state, colorado, our latest poll showing president obama with a five-point lead over mitt romney. 5 50-45%. the political landscape there changed since george bush won that state. president obama though carrying it by nine points in '08. in your opinion, what has changed? >> what's changed in colorado is we have a lot more high-tech industry. we have a lot of renewable energy and solar. and we have voters who really care about the environment and the economy. and president obama, his policies really appeal to those voters a lot more. it's interesting that now it's a five-point lead because for about six months, up until a week or two ago, president obama had a narrow one to two-point le lead, so that really shows that president obama is breaking out in some of the key swing states like colorado. >> we shall all be watching tonight to see how things go down there in denver. diana degette, thank you, i appreciate it. >>> up next, painting denver pink. planned parenthood launches an anti romney blitz in colorado. i'm going to talk to the organization's president. >>> plus, bringing
to win pennsylvania and i'm become to become the next president of the united states. >> mitt romney said that on friday when the republican pennsylvania victory plan was still on track. >> voter i.d., which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania. done. >> but a judge today said it's not done. in a huge win for voters rights, the judge blocked the key provision for the voter i.d. law. on election day, pennsylvania voters can be asked for a photo i.d. but are not required to show voter i.d. in order to cast a regular ballot. the judge also ruled that the state can continue its advertising campaign. it worries voters rights activists because they say it could confuse voters. a lawyer told reporters if that message doesn't change, then we may be back in court. voters in pennsylvania have just one week left to register to vote. pennsylvania is the 14th state since 2010 to block or blunt a republican-led restrictive voter law, according to the brennan center. joining me now, msnbc's joy reid, senior correspondent. this was a big win today in that pennsylvania courtr

(laughter) of course, that law has been challenged in the courts and we are expecting a ruling -- (laughter). all right, just roll the ruling. >> we have breaking news right now. a judge has issued a decision in pennsylvania's controversial voter i.d. law. >> jon: all those without voter i.d. must gay marry whilst on medical marijuana during the first trimester! there, i (bleep)ing settled everything! (cheers and applause) it's all done! (cheers and applause) all right. what did the actual judge rule? >> the judge
to believe the problem for mitt romney is not national polling. it is swing state polling. nbc/marist, you put out data this morning, close in several states but still in ohio, mitt romney down by 8 points among likely voters. i think that's very problematic for him. if he loses ohio getting to 270 electoral votes becomes not impossible but much more difficult. >> at the same time in the national poll, right track up to 40%, still not great, but it's the highest number we've seen in a number of years. this is better for the president. the enthusiasm gap still favors the president. >> yeah. the right track number i think is fascinating, andrea, because there's no obvious reason in the country in terms of economic indicators or anything else that people should be all of a sudden getting more optimistic about the direction of the country after they spent several years in the 30s in terms of people saying right direction but you're right, any kind of boost of optimism, and you've actually seen president obama moving in coordination with this, the question of is president obama handling the eco
romney, whether it's his foreign trip where he embarrassed the united states, embarrassed our greatest ally, or shot from the hip before he knew anything about the libya attack, even before families were notified, that recklessness, that irresponsibility, i think is taking a toll on him and it's taking a toll on his race. we'll probably see more. he keeps promising a foreign policy speech. it's been a lot of speeches with no policy in them. the one thing he doesn't -- he's good at critiquing the president. the one thing he doesn't do is put out what he would do differently on any particular issue in foreign policy. so we welcome this debate. we would love to have it with mitt romney because i think the american people do see a real difference between these two men and that's why they keep siding with the president in terms of his ability to be the commander in chief. >> stephanie cutter, previewing the debate, good luck to your team tonight. >> thanks, andrea. >>> mitt romney, what is his battle plan? romney senior adviser and former senator jim talent joins us next. msnbc's prime time
campaign, as polls show him trailing in some key swing states. >> romney has to do something in the debate to get an edge over obama or he's not going to win. >> it will be a big stage. in 2008, more than 50 million people tuned in for the first obama-mccain face-off of that presidential year. keeping a close eye on the candidates -- fact checkers. >> somebody once said that what we should do in a debate is be off stage and if a candidate lies, i should come on stage and slap them across the face. unfortunately, it's not that immediate. >> it takes a little longer, which is why a full staff will work throughout the night to see who is telling the truth and who's not. >> many folks will not listen to 90 minutes of this debate, but they will listen to three or four sound bites that are the best. it is critical for the candidates to get those right. >> that was hallie jackson reporting. anthony anderson died shortly after his arrest. police say they caught him in the middle of a drug deal. the medical examiner's report lists the cause of death as blunt force trauma with a ruptured spleen and
. mitt romney trails in many battleground state polls and this is an opportunity for him to gain some ground. >> i think you're going to see the mitt romney that really cares about putting the american people back to work. i think that's the most important goal that the governor has. >> reporter: president obama will be pressing his own plan for the economy. but today he is facing new criticism over something he said in 2007. during a speech to a predominantly black audience, then senator obama implied the bush administration was withholding recovery money after hurricane katrina based on race. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? >> reporter: all major media outlets covered the speech at the time. >> i have to say i'm a little amazed that as you mentioned a widely covered speech likely by people at your network is somehow caused a kerfuffle five years later. >> reporter: millions of people will be watching anxious to see who has the best jobs plan. bill is try to find work. he has been a regular at this job center since he lost his job as a truck driver last

, romney closed the gap as well. he's statistically tied with the president there. last month, romney trailed the president in that state by five points. a tight race all the way around. new national polls show the race tightening with 34 days to go. head-to-head matchup here. this is nationally. president obama leading 49% to 46% among likely voters. again, within the margin of error and closer than it was two weeks ago. on the direction of the country, 40% say we're heading in the right direction. 53% say things are on the wrong track. 40% is the highest mark for this question in 3 1/2 years. there's also growing optimism about the economy. 57% say it's improving. that's the highest number this poll has recorded on this question. one thing not going the president's way here, his handling of the situations in egypt and libya. more people disapprove than approve on that question. as for mr. romney, it appears he's still paying for the comments about the 47%, 51% of respondents to this nbc poll say recent impressions made by the republican candidate make him less favorable. they view h
. look at the map of swing states. if you look at the ones where mitt romney is running within 4 points of president obama, places like florida, virginia, iowa, missouri where he's ahead, north carolina where he's even or ahead, you add all those to the solid states for mitt montana and the leaning states for mitt romney, he's still only at 263 electorate votes. he needs to bring ohio or other swe swing state, nevada, new hampshire. he's got an unparallel opportunity tonight to come on stage with the president of the united states and make his case, larry. >> john, the wall street journal poll and others have shown that romney has closed the gap a little pit with president obama at least nationwide and some of the swing states. to what do you attribute this closi closing? is it the benghazi problem, the middle east problem or what? >> i think it more about mitt romney returning to equilibrium after some of the blows that he took. democrats got a surge from their convention. romney took a big hit with that 47% video. but when you saw the surge obama had in the polls, it was a little too
: tonight the economy takes center stage as mitt romney and barack obama face the states. they are here for our debate warm-up. is from the getting more specific about the tax plan? we think so. we have the details. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight is the night. obama versus romney. this same stage. the expectations are sky-high. it seems like all obama had to do is show up. with more on this neil cavuto from denver. can romney meet these expectations? >> they are high expectations. the pressure is on him because of these polls. i often think that a lot is put on the challenger. sometimes he can benefit by showing up and sharing the stage with the president of the united states. already on equal footing with him in that respect. he does have the advantage of a dicey economy going forward. the president's supporters say it is not as it had been, and there is some economic news today that portends may be the worst is behind it. but i agree with that. if you want to be in game changer this is the night. and no one doubts the earlier point. he has
recently been outspending mitt romney in a key swing state. "the new york times" reports that over the last two weeks in colorado, president obama's campaign and its allies ran seven television commercials for every five ads run for mitt romney. >>> seems free will is still surviving the 2012 presidential campaign so far. a poll in "usa today" finds that 18% of romney supporters and 24% of those who say they back president obama could still change their mind based on what happens in the debates. >>> and according to pugh research, more than six in ten voters are likely to watch the debate tonight. a majority, 51% to 29% think that president obama will do better than mitt romney. >>> rocker jon bon jovi is busy this week doing performances to support president obama. he has two appearances in iowa on friday. las vegas on saturday and on sunday he's going to perform at an obama fund raiser with stevie wonder and katie peri. this always sells. the web side bat lip reading is choosing paul ryan for its next victim after previous satires of president obama and mitt romney. they reworked a ryan v
